The Beauty of Denim

My denim project for this moment is the Eat Dust Fit 73 jeans. Eat Dust is a fanatastic denim brand from Antwerp – Belgium and I am wearing this pair for 2.4 years now, every day, day in day out. The jean already got some really nice fadings and some spots are broken in and already repaired. Today my right knee just came through the denim fabric. Ít’s shows that the blue warp is broken but the white weft is still in perfect state. The beauty of denim.

Wrangler Blue Bell 11MJ Reproduction Champion Jacket from 1956

One of the best denim jackets ever made are the Wrangler Blue Bell Champion jackets. These jackets are also known as Promo jackets. This history about these jackets is really cool. They were made in the late ’40′s and ’50′s for the rodeo champions to promote the Wrangler brand. Rodeo events were very popular in those times. It was a clever way from Wrangler to use these heroes as living advertising boards. These rodeo jackets were specially made for them, so it wasn’t a piece in the regular collection. This also explains why these original jackets are really hard to find and very rare. True collectors items.

Wrangler Jeans also known as one of the Big 3 denim brands. The other two brands are Levi’s and Lee Jeans. The Wrangler name came from cowboys who worked with horses for their living. In 1947 Wrangler changed their name from Blue Bell into Wrangler for their cowboy oriented line.

The Champion jackets are special items, even the re-productions are not very easy to find anymore. Since a couple of years Wrangler unfortunately stopped producing this special premium Blue Bell line. My Wrangler Blue Bell 11MJ Champion jacket is a replica from 1956. This is the first jacket produced by Wrangler in 1948. It has a button front until 1950, when the buttons were replaced by a zip front.

The jacket featured vents on the back of the shoulders seams that were held in place by elastic strips on the side. It was tailored to give a tighter fit and still allow free movement.

Indigo People Spring 2015 Scarf Collection

Indigo People is coming with a nice Spring collection for 2015. Their inspiration for the collection came from Kasuri. Kasuri, a Japanese word originated from the Malay word ‘ikat’, was historically produced in Central, South and most of Southeast Asia. It became a traditional folk textile in Japan since the middle of the 18th century. Kasuri patterns have distinctive blurry edges, known as the soft edge technique, and look as if they were splashed onto the fabric. Taking inspiration from the antique Kasuri textiles, Indigo People brings this dyeing technique back to its origine of Southeast Asia for upcoming Spring.

The collection containss 8 scarves with each of it its own unique beauty. Below some sneak images of this blue gold. Let the Spring begin!

Ray’s Raw Denim is a one man brand. They make world-class jeans by hand and believe that style is better than fashion. The garments they build are designed for hard wear and intended to make you stand just a bit taller and have a spring of confident comfort in your step. Seriously.

Indigo People Tsuru Scarf

Yesterday I received this early X-Mas present from my friends from Indigo People. Indigo People was born out of love for traditional craftsmanship and the beauty of natural indigo. The brand is a homage to the artisans who keep up their heritage and to people with a great affection for authentic handicrafts. All their products are woven by hand and coloured with natural indigo. I got the Tsuru model which is width: 45cm / length: 180cm. I really like the intensive blue colour and the weaving structure of the scarf. The colour will age very nice over time. Many thanks guys and all the best for you too in 2015 with Indigo People! See you soon.

Vintage Lee Jeans Rider Jacket From The ’70′s

Old denim jackets with a customized back panel are my favorites. In the ’60′s and ’70′s a lot of bikers and hippies started to make this trend because they wanted to express themselves or they wanted to show their membership from a club. But also commercial companies did this personalisation on the back of jackets as workwear garments for their employees. This particular Lee Jeans Rider jacket from the ’70′s is in my private collection for a while and it has a nice chain stitched back. The jacket is made from a left hand fabric which feels very soft because it’s washed a lot during the years by the pre-owner(s). Check out this ‘Blue Ridge Pool Service’ jacket.

Butts and Shoulders Leather Apron

We made with our own Butts and Shoulders brand a new family member, a leather apron. The apron is made from natural vegetable tanned leather and is all made by hand in Holland. The leather will age very nice within time, especially when you will use this apron everyday. Some months ago we made a great collaboration apron with Beerze Beer and the result after wearing the sample for a couple months is amazing. You can check it out here below. It has a deep cognac colour already. Our 2nd Beerze Beer collab product, a beer bottle opener, is also attached on the apron.

We made the aprons for craftsman like tattoo artists, barbers, shoemakers, painters, cooks, etc. People who have an authentic job, professionals or just for the hobby. We added a lot of details on it and to make it very special the first run is made in 20 numbered pieces only. Check the apron below, it’s now available on the Butts and Shoulders website.

Jimmy Q and Ricky Hall for Roy Roger’s Rugged, Vintage Inspired Heritage Collection

With recovered material from the archives, Roy Roger’s from Italy presents a heritage collection which is vintage inspired featuring an unique eye for details like the raw selvedge denim, contrasting stitchings and vegetal tanned labels: the Rugged Collection. Roy Roger’s Rugged grounds its roots on the historic archives of the company and celebrates the collective imagination of the American world of the 40′s and 50′s. The collection is an alternative to the regular menswear line, yet staying close to the roots of the brand, offering quality denim and handmade in Italy pieces.

Drawing inspiration by the vintage world, the Roy Roger’s Rugged collection is a journey throughout legitimacy. A trip across the American imagery, from hotrods and bikes inspirations, to raw denim and washed chambrays, where each piece of the collection recalls the authentic spirit of enduring freedom of USA roads. Roy Roger’s Rugged chose for this cool photo set models Jimmy Q, a pro skateboarder and tattoo artist, and Ricki Hall, who has been nominated from Esquire Weekly “The man with the most influential haircut in Britain” this year. A deeply evocative photo-shooting seen trough the lens of the camera of the photographer Luca Campri.

Dumluck Denim Brand Presents: The Third

Dumluck is a one man show denim brand by Kenley Chittick from Holland. Kenley just released his new collection called The Third. The whole collection is made by hand using industrial vintage machines. One of the best parts of the brand is that he only use deadstock fabrics from the best mills like Cone Mills from the U.S. and Kuroki from Japan. In his Third collection he added some great new styles like several denim jackets, shirts (also an extra long selvage denim shirt called Act S, really nice!) and of course denims. Kenley combines authentic craftmanships and new silhouettes which give a new look and feel. Well done Kenley and congrats! Check below some images from his Third collection.

Upcoming Denim Book: Denim Dudes by Amy Leverton

A few weeks ago I posted the new denim book ‘True Fit’ from Viktor Fredback, which is a really cool one, but there’s more coming next year! This February another denim book will launched called ‘Denim Dudes’ by Amy Leverton. Amy Leverton is a denim expert who has worked in the industry for ten years, most recently at the leading trend forecasting website, WGSN where she is currently Director of Denim and Youth Culture.

For her new book she portrayed around 80 key players in the denim scene such as Jason Denham (Denham), François Girbaud, (Marithé + François Girbaud), Adriano Goldschmied (Diesel, 7 For All Mankind) and Kenichi and Kenji Shiotani (Warehouse Japan), etc. The book also explores the very best and latest denim styling on the street, from bikers to vintage dealers and store owners. Exclusive photography for the book was shot in Paris, Tokyo, London, New York, LA, Milan, San Francisco, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Barcelona, Melbourne, Gothenburg and Sydney.

The book will be published by Laurence King who also did an amazing job with the book ‘Vintage Menswear’ from the owners of The Vintage Showroom store and archive. There are 272 pages in her new book filled with great fullcolour pictures from dudes in denim. Amy is already working on the 2nd edition: ‘Denim Dudettes’! Wow, sounds very good! Can’t wait to see the first edition in February. Guess we will have to wait a little while, but for now we have already some sneak pages, check it here below! Bravo Amy.
